[R] plotting overlapping data points

I am just learning to use R.  The data from my current project are
integer-valued.  I am able to create scatterplots, but I would like to
have some indication on the plots when multiple data points overlap at
the same x-y coordinate. SPSS uses 'petals', and other packages use
jitter.  Are there similar options in R?  I have not been able to find
any in the documentation.

Thanks very much,
